Hills, 3k rpm, not broken in yet probably all contributing.

It's felt forever since I was under 5000 miles, but the mileage was a bit lower in its early life.

Recently, I have been averaging bellow my usual 24-26mpg... I logged 19.8-21.2mpg in my last 3 tanks, with about 30% city and 70% fast highway driving (about 70mph)

My 05 ZX4 just rolled 45k miles today. My records have shown 30-33 MPG since the 4th tank of gas. 90+% of the mileage is highway / interstate miles.

'06 with 600 miles, two tanks of gas both showing 26+ MPG (26.5 on the last one and 27 on the first one.)

Mixed driving, lots of 75 MPH highway speeds. Of course, only where it's legal.

Beats my '02 Escape XLT AWD hands-down by a good 10 MPG. Slightly better than the 22 MPG average of my '99 'vette. But if I get 22 MPG with 350 HP, shouldn't I get 50 MPG with 150 HP? I went to public school.

No complaints here.

Before my exhaust, I could get 27 mpg city. And about 33 mpg highway. Now with the header, exhaust, more aggressive tune, different intake and my lead foot. I get 25mpg average, about 29-30 highway, and about 22 city.
